We joined the London Landmarks tour East, with tour guide Harry in lovely sunny October Saturday. Despite living in London, this was such a revealing tour of the city of London. It was fascinating to learn the history about buildings that we pass by on a regular basis. Harry was very knowledgable and answered all the questions that the group had. Definitely a good tour to book.

I did the East tour and our guide Adam was awesome. It was a 3 hour tour with a nice history at each one of our stops. Ended with a tasty lunch in a cool pub and I made friends who I spent the rest of the day and the day after.
